My son is doing a project on the moon, stars, and sun. he has had to record the shape of the moon since dec.10th and around the holidays that went out the window. i wanted to know if there was a website or other source to find out what the moon looked like during the month of dec. to present. i want to verify that his recordings have been accurate for the project.
